| Re: Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens Firmware v1.2.0 update! |
Yes, I had loaded firmware v1.1.3 on my camera back in June. As I said, I literally followed the instructions to the letter and even went further by clearing all settings and custom functions before attempting the update. I am really disappointed in Canon that this could happen. I believe this first ever user applied lens update was poorly tested.
The camera recognized the update and started applying it when I clicked ok. When the progress bar reached 29% it suddenly jumped to a full bar and said 2978% complete. I swear this is the craziest thing I have ever seen and I knew at that point that I was screwed. I quickly got Canon on the phone and we waited and additional 10 minutes but never got to update completely. The camera was locked up and I had to remove the battery to get it to turn off. A second attempt with a different memory card while on the phone with Canon came to the same result. The lens will be sent out to Canon tomorrow for repair.
